|I am thinking pink shawl, green border. Dream in Color Smooshy from the Loopy Ewe.|
I finished my Boneyard Shawl. No photos. I'm washing it today and it looks like cat fur with a shawl attached. Serves me right for leaving it in a neat pile, on the chair the cat has claimed as his. You know where a 20 pound cat sleeps? Anywhere it wants to.
I have the first Vlog-cast in the can, but it needs to be edited. Something I thought I could do today, but Gene had to be at work at 4 am to re-boot some servers. The first Tuesday after the second Monday of each month. Herne needs his hair washed and cannot do it himself. I cannot wash it because Herne is getting too adult looking and he is having a hard time doing it alone. So, it's not my job. Gene has to. I stand by the door, so there are no questions about propriety and Gene washes hair fast. I do wish he could do it alone, but the bubbles really upset him. It's an autism thing. So, Herne is staying home and making use of his time by learning to use Photoshop. He's really very good at it. Far more so than a ten year old should be. It's not a special gift. It's the ability to lock out the universe and concentrate on one thing. Autism allows that. Better than the five hundred things my sorry brain is working on at once. ADHD, the gift that keeps you confuddled.
I have a clean oven, and can dye yarn today. I may, if Gene is awake when he gets home about noon. That is the benefit of going to work before the birds are up. He comes home early. He also does not compensate by sleeping early the night before and tends to fall asleep mid-afternoon. I can't. One nap and I'm up half the night.
I also have research on color trends to do for next fall. I predict fall colors and someone doing a military look. You can count on one designer doing military for fall and nautical for summer every year.
Sam #Zell said yesterday that if more people wanted to make more money they should work harder. He's a real estate tycoon in Chicago. I did some contract work for him in the 90's. I remember the day they called their entire IT staff in and fired them while we changed their passwords. If you won't give opportunity, then shut up. He saved very little and lost a lot of loyal employees. I felt sick and do to this day. I'd rather work for myself, harder than I've ever worked for less, than someone like him in any capacity. You can't be someone who does not value your employees and fires them to save very little in the long run and a lot of good will. He's also a famous grump. Makes Trump look warm and fuzzy. Oh, and I'm taller than he is. I'm 5'2". He just fires at will and is famous for it. I've seen it, so it's not rumor. Those poor IT people. I think of them often.
Stay warm and gift yourself a hobby. It makes life more enjoyable and delicious.
